At Fort Vancouver, Independence Day is celebrated at Pearson Airfield, where a 20-minute fireworks show will start at 10:05 p.m. Injuries related to fireworks most often affect the hands and fingers. Area will be closed off at 6 fence off the launch area. Food will be available from 4:00-8:00 p.m., with food trucks from Romanti-Ezer, Fernando's Churros and Pacific Cafe. General admission is free.

If you don't want to fearless the traffic for any of those options, or if you don't want to roll your own fireworks, there are plenty of fireworks displays to be seen all over metro Atlanta on July 3 or July 4.
